You’re allowed to feel off and take as many breaks as you need to. Your biggest responsibility is taking care of yourself.⠀You’re allowed to not have your life figured out. You’re allowed to be ‘behind’ because where you are is fine. Where you are is where you need to be right now.⠀ Work doesn’t define you. Grades don’t define you. Medication doesn’t define you. Anxiety doesn’t define you. The past doesn’t define you. Relationships don’t define you. Words don’t define you. Looks don’t define you. ⠀ How you love defines you. How you use your gifts to help others defines you. Your gifts are part of your purpose. Even if you say you don’t know what your purpose is, you have purpose. Start with your heart. Start with how you love naturally. Start with how you’re able to help others. You know more about yourself than you think you know. This planet needs love more than anything. Love looks like being kind. Love looks like trusting. Love looks like helping people where you can. Love looks like patience. Love looks like getting up in the morning and doing the best you can. Love looks like you. Everything is coming together. I know from deep experience that even when nothing makes sense you must keep going. You must stay open. You must experience pain. You must try not to be hard on yourself. You must keep going because your purpose here is so important. ⠀ You are safe. You are not a burden. You are loved beyond knowledge. Trust your process.

Anksioznost je dio života svakoga od nas, a evo kako je možete umanjiti.

Dani opuštenih godišnjih odmora su iza nas, a dolaskom jeseni dočekalo nas je i mnoštvo obaveza, briga, novih i starih problema te naravno, stres. Anksioznost se danas smatra globalnim problemom jer od nje pati preko 280 milijuna ljudi na svijetu. Ako se i vi susrećete s njom, donosimo vam nekoliko jednostavnih savjeta koji vam mogu pomoći.

1. Naspavajte se 

Kad god primjetite da se nešto čudno događa u vašim mislima, potišteni se ili ste u velikoj brizi oko nečega što vas realno ne bi trebalo uznemiravati, zapitajte se jeste li možda jednostavno umorni. Svakom od nas potreban je dobar san kako bi naš mozak normalno funkcionirao. Ako se niste odmorili, jednostavno si recite ‘ovo je sve jer sam umorna i samo se moram naspavati’ i tu večer izdvojite vrijeme za opuštanje i neometan san. Ili čak, ako možete, za popodnevni ‘nap’. Odmorna glava čini čuda.

2. Vježbe disanja

Znamo, znamo – tko u danu ima vremena za vježbe relaksacije i disanja. Vrijeme prolazi prebrzo, a vi ste na sto strana. No, vjerujte nam. Ako si uvedete u rutinu svakodnevne vježbe disanja i relaksaciju, promjene neće izostati. Anskioznost će se barem smanjiti, a vi ćete se lakše nositi s njom.

3. Potražite profesionalnu pomoć

Ako vas anksioznost preuzima i ne možete se nositi s njom, nemojte odgađati. Što prije razgovarate s nekim i dobite konkretne upute u savjete, to će vam prije biti lakše i bolje ćete razumjeti o čemu se radi. Mentalno zdravlje jednako je važno kao i sve naše obveze u danu, ispravak – puno, puno važnije!
